Chief of Police
The goal of the Harrisonburg Police Department is to help make the City of
Harrisonburg a safer and better place to live and work. We approach our
duties with a commitment to partnerships and problem-solving techniques to
improve the quality of life in our community. The men and women of the
Harrisonburg Police Department will continue to provide the highest level of
quality and professional police service to the citizens of Harrisonburg.
Harrisonburg deserves, and will receive, nothing less.
We are a community oriented police department. We want the citizens and
the police to work together to solve problems in our community. Police
cannot do it alone. We must have the assistance of the citizens to reduce
crime and help keep neighborhoods safe. Citizens must be the eyes and ears
for the police officer in your neighborhood.
The information found on our web page is an example of how we strive to better
inform the community of our services. We seek both traditional and unique
ways to solve problems. Your participation and cooperation are
instrumental in making this city a safe place for everyone. I hope that
you will find the information here useful in assisting us with that goal.
Please continue to visit our website as it grows to become another source of
information from us to you.
